squash the muffins!

muffins are in the oven!

i used a butternut squash this time, as that's what i had on hand. also, instead of bran cereal, i crushed 4 weetabix, and added a touch extra flour because it seemed a bit gloopy. batter tastes good, i'm sure they'll be yummy. and i do remember when i was little, my mum saying canned squash made a better pie than canned pumpkin.

pumpkin muffins

1/2 cup soft butter
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup pumpkin
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup crushed bran cereal
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans + 24 whole pecans

cream butter & sugar. beat in egg and vanilla, stir in milk and pumpkin.

combine flour, cereal, baking powder, and spices. stir into pumpkin mixture until just combined. stir in raisins and nuts.

divide batter between 24 greased & floured muffin tins. top each with a whole pecan. bake at 400f for 20 minutes.

    I read somewhere that most canned pumpkin is really just squash anyway:-)
